The Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, reaffirmed his commitment to the construction and completion of the Pwalugu multipurpose dam.

During a meeting with religious leaders in Bolgatanga, as part of his campaign tour in the Upper East Region, Dr. Bawumia emphasized the critical importance of this project for the region’s agricultural and economic development.

Dr. Bawumia expressed his unwavering commitment to seeing the project through, stating, “I have no doubt that I am championing the Pwalugu multipurpose dam, and by the grace of God, we will do it.”

However, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is disappointed that Vice President Dr. Bawumia could not provide a clear direction on how the construction of the dam would proceed.

The party is also disappointed that the VEEP could not explain the almost $12 million payment made to contractors engaged to construct the dam.

The Upper East Regional Communication Officer of the NDC, Jonathan Salifu Abdallah, shared these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

“What did he actually even say? He said it is dear to his heart, but what is the meaning of that? When you say something is dear to your heart, it means you want it to be done. I guess I can interpret it that way. So why is he not doing the dam?”

“He and his boss came and assembled all of us at Pwalugu. They brought a lot of entertainers around. They brought our chiefs. But what has become of the construction of the dam?” he asked.

Mr. Abdallah Salifu challenged the government to explain to Ghanaians what the $11.9 million had been used for and apologize for the delay in construction.
